Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2013
(Bottle) Black colour with dense, beige head. Roasted, malty nose with notes of chocolate, cacao, a touch of pine needles, coffee and black rye bread. Malty, roasted taste with dark chocolate, coffee, cacao, liquorice, tobacco and a fresh piney bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with just a touch of sweetness. Very well balanced. Excellent porter.

330ml bottle (BottleShop, Canterbury)
Lovely coffee aroma, mellow. Black, large tight tan head. Huge roasty body, lots of spicy zesty hops. Full and smooth and succulent. Burps pure hops - lovely! Very classy brew. No sign of 7.5%. Can’t actually think how I would improve this, so probably an under-rate.

SaintMatty (5536) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2012
330ml Bottle (Thanks Scopey) - Very dark brown with a foamy tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate, grain, ashtray and soapy hops in the aroma. Rich and roasted taste with notes of chocolate, roasted malt, soapy hops and a hint of coffee. Really easy to drink. Its drinkability belies its strength.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2012
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. A deep almost murky old brown beer with a small sidesticking khaki head. Aroma is hoppy and roasted, I get chocolate paper and cold coffee, earthy tones and caramel. Quite there on the aroma! It’s fantastic in flavor! My god this is tasty! Tons of cold coffee blended with fruity citrusy hops and chocolate! My oh my! This was a true surprise! Really impressed! Leaving a mild dry tounge. Lingering chocolate and coffee. 12.05.2012

Scopey (7437) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle from the Kernel. It pours very dark brown, with a thin beige head. The nose is fresh pine, caramel, roasted malt, earth, bitter chocolate and coffee grinds. The taste is roasted malt, pine, salted liquorice, rich dark chocolate, fudge, earth, resin, tangy dark fruit and grapefruit, with a bitter, roasty finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. Luxurious mouth-feel. Delicious and very well balanced. One of the best Kernel offerings I have had and that’s saying something!

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2012
(Bottle) Pours dark brown to black with a creamy, nougat coloured head. The aroma holds dark bread and herbs up front with undertones of coffee, liquorice root, clay, cocoa, earthy tobacco, flowers, pine, blood orange, lemon and orange peel. The flavor is light sweet to dry, medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of citrus, earth, tea, herbs, grass, bark bread, cocoa, salt liquorice and earthy tobacco. The mouthfeel is clean and round with a light carbonation. Herbs, tobacco, liquorice and dark bread on the finish. Medium bodied.
